Connect Our Schools becomes the Friendly City Trail
As we wrap up 2022, we are asking for your support to help us Spread Pixie Dust in the Valley and ensure everyone has access to safe accessible biking and walking. Can you help us reach our 2022 Pixie Dust goals by midnight on December 31? Please consider a donation to the Coalition.Donate
Everyone deserves the freedom to walk and bike as part of their daily life. Because of your support, the city of Harrisonburg, VA, invested in the biggest walk-bike project in the city’s history!
The Friendly City Trail connects three schools, two parks, and neighborhoods. It is a big step toward a cohesive network of low-stress greenways and on-street paths in Harrisonburg.
Seven years after launching a campaign to Connect Our Schools in Harrisonburg, Virginia, we are delighted to finally walk, bike, and roll on the completed Friendly City Trail. Trails don’t build themselves; in this case, they don’t fund themselves.
We are bursting with pride for our community’s success and are celebrating this fantastic trail project. We still have a long way to go to make the Shenandoah Valley a welcoming, accessible place for anyone who wants to walk or bike, but we’re one small step closer.
Thank you to everyone who made the Friendly City Trail a success. We encourage you to lend your voice and join us in building better communities in the Shenandoah Valley.
